Seagrass meadow restoration and protection is vital for the biodiversity of the Mediterranean as many fish use these meadows as nursery grounds. They also help to slow down climate change due to being great carbon stores; trapping around 11% of the oceans organic carbon despite only occupying 2% of the ocean floor.
You can now adopt your very own Seagrass Patch for 30euros per year!
This will help fund the running costs of planting new seagrass to expand the existing meadows and restore those that have been degraded. You will receive a photo and update every year of your seagrass patch to show its health, growth and what’s living in there. When you sign up we’ll also send you a free Project Manaia recycled pencil and postcard to say thanks :)
